Luna passed away

Not sure if anyone will remember her, but she was a puppy I found 8 years ago on the streets in Italy. She was really sick and I brought her back to the US with me. I joined this board then back then and learned so much about this wonderful breed. Anyway, sorry for the rambling. Luna just passed away this morning, less than 2 hours ago. It doesn't even feel real.

We're not sure what happened, but the vet tech said it didn't look like bloat. I was up feeding my son and I heard her in the kitchen. I thought she needed water, so I got up to give her some and she was laying on the floor breathing very shallow. I woke my husband and told him there was something wrong with her and we needed to go to the emergency vet. As we prepared to go her breathing got more shallow and slowed and eventually stopped. We're having her cremated and her ashes spread in a rose garden for pets. I don't even know what to do now. She was only 8 RIP Luna 9/7/09

Re: Luna passed away

It's always surreal, no matter when or how. Our thoughts are with you and your family. Be good to yourselves in this difficult time and know
both you and she are so blessed for having had each other.

So sorry to hear this. I understand the feeling of "not feeling real" as you said. Beautiful picture of Luna!
